Our Next Europe Trip

Jump to last reply

We are off to Europe on Sept. 6. We fly from Houston to Frankfurt on Lufthansa (using United miles). The plane is an Airbus, the biggest one and we were able to snag seats on the upper level with a two seat configuration . From the Frankfurt airport we hop a train to Wurzburg. we spend 3 days in Wurzburg, then hop a train to Regensburg for two days. We train to Vienna for 2 days and then train to Budapest for 3 days and then fly home to Houston. We used our points to stay at the Vienna Plaza and Budapest Marriott. For Wurzburg we are staying at the Wurzburger Hof and in Regensburg at the ACHAT hotel.

Weather looks fine right now for temperatures but could be a bit rainy at times. We have been to Vienna on our first trip to Europe back in 1990. The other cities will be a first for us. We are taking one full size suitcase each as we are traveling a lot on trains we need to be able to move fast. I am using a novel approach to generating space so that we can shop in each city. My closet is full of clothes that I do not need or wear much anymore (the clothes are fine just have more than I use). So on this trip I am packing these and will discard them each day so as to generate room for our souvenirs and other items we pick up. I also bought a pair of light weight suitcases to use going forward on our trips. These weigh about 5 lbs compared to our other cases which weighed about 9 lbs . Others may suggest we do laundry or take fewer clothes but I like this approach as it's much easier. We also pack cans of coke on our trip. We have done this each time we travel to Europe as coke is expensive over there and in the evening when we want to drink one we have it. These are just a few tips that we share as some might find it helpful, now please no snide remarks.
